Hello Total,

You might see if resetting the notification icons may help get rid of it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Umm, I suppose other than resetting it again, you can set it to Hide icon and notifications to see if it will stay gone for you. Did it give you any pop-up message with it this time?

Did manually setting it to hide remove it for you?

Weird indeed. You might see if running the memory test again may reset it as it should be and get rid of it.
